Flopcast 152: Working With Strippers
Kevin and Kornflake are finally back in Chickentown, just in time for Jackie Chan Day. (We're celebrating by doing our own stunt work throughout the entire podcast.) This week: An 80s-themed concert report, featuring Katrina (without the Waves) and Howard Jones (with a keytar); reviews of comics we found at the Rhode Island Independent Publishing Expo (featuring birthday clowns, giant sandwiches, and city chickens); Kornflake's new job (inspired by Janet from Three's Company, of course); and a "Chickens in the News" story from Athens, Georgia, where a giant metal rooster is on the loose.
Kevin harvested quite a bounty at the Rhode Island Independent Publishing Expo, including:
- Letters from Bummer Camp, a zine curated by Alyssa Rorke
- 30 Days in Brooklyn by Fiona Avocado
- The Subjective Way by Jonathan Rotsztain
- Malcriada by Suzy X
- Jess Ruliffson's City Chickens from So What? Press
- Up Down Clown by Whit Taylor
Shoutout to the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont
Kevin puts in a quick plug for the South Coast Toy and Comic Show, April 11-12. Where else can you see Buck Rogers, Twiki, and Taimak?
Finally, it's a sad day when a beautiful work of art such as this is stolen.
